I was going to buy the abit ip35 pro but theyre sold out on newegg and I plan on ordering my full comp there dont really want to split places.
Anyways what other ip35 boards or boards under $200 OC well? Some people have suggested the D3SL/R Gigabyte board to save me money if I didn't want SLI and said it could OC my e8400 to like 3.6ghz. I've seen many people with e8400 oc'd to 4.0+ though.
I was thinking a little bit about the EVGA Nforce 750i but am I just paying the extra money for SLI and what not? I also read a few reviews that had trouble using vista 64 bit with it which I intend on using .
Anyways just curious if I can get a bit more bang by spending 50 or so bucks over the D3SL/R. Should I wait for the abit board to come back in stock or is their other good options?
The best overclocker below $200 would likely be an ASUS P35 board. www.hardocp.com had some 500MHz+ FSB overclocks with quality RAM and an E6300. ASUS P5K Deluxe hit 505MHz.
The 750i will take you to about 400MHz FSB (450Mhz if you're very lucky).
At $200 you can get a Gigabyte GA-EX38-DS4 but it's out of stock at newegg.
Best (by least effort taken) to overclock :
GA-EX38-DS4 (does 400MHz at stock so you likely won't overclock it at all).
ASUS P5K (Pro/E/Premium) Premium is a revision of the Deluxe mentioned above
Just about everything else
